I've been to Disneyland Paris twice in the space of 6 months, one time was planned and another was a surprise from a family member. I love it so much. It's my personal dream to travel and go see the Florida one as well as the original in California.
People my age ask me what the obsession is and I always feel like really immature for loving it and usually answer them with something that changes the subject but HERE ON THIS DAY I AM GOING TO STAND UP FOR MY BELIEFS PEOPLE!
I seriously felt like Martin Luther King as I typed that out haha anyway...
As cheesy as this sounds, I think it's the Peter Pan inside of me and he won't let me grow up! I spent my whole childhood wanting to be older and thinking about how I couldn't wait to drink alcohol and have a job etc etc but I now really don't feel ready for all the responsibilities adult life brings just yet!
There's actually so much hard work you have to undertake to get somewhere and be successful in life and I am COMPLETELY driven and really want to work hard to achieve my dreams but there's this part of me which is so scared that I really won't make it, and that's the part of me that just wants to sit back and watch Disney movies all day and gush over Mickey Mouse instead! So very sad of me I know haha.
Disneyland is just the place you can go and leave everything behind you, whether you're feeling stressed or worried about something. It's just that place that feels like your real home and it's just a lovely feeling!
When there I literally forget about everything worrying me. It's such an escape. It's this loathing of reality that I can't seem to get to grips with so I compromise it with a fantasyland instead. Or maybe I'm just really immature for my age, who knows but just for now, before I really am too old (I probably am already I know) let me go to Disneyland and enjoy my time ok! Thank you and goodnight!
